It’s almost school time here in Minnesota. In two weeks my daughter will start her first year of high school. She actually has a 9th grade orientation day two weeks from yesterday. Let’s just say I’m a bit more excited about school starting than she is. :)
In honor of school and college starting I decided to make and decorate some school themed cookies.
Everyone needs a few notebooks for school.
A few pencils to write with.
And it might not hurt to take an apple to the teacher.
Or maybe a fresh bouquet of flowers would be a better gift.
Since this was my first attempt at all but the flowers I’m pretty happy with my decorating. I’m sure I’ll try something a bit different with the pencils if I make them again but it was a great first attempt.
A few of these cookies are on their way as part of a birthday present for my niece and godchild. Shh, don’t tell her, they probably won’t arrive until tomorrow.
Once she gets her packages I’ll show another more personalized gift that I made for her. It was such a great project that I mailed it…twice!
Are you looking forward to school starting or has it started already in your area?
